Pathology Residency at West Virginia University

The WVU Pathology Residency Program's mission is to provide strong basic training in anatomic and clinical pathology and its subspecialties.

The program's philosophic objective is to develop a sturdy medical knowledge/skill base and professional attributes that allow a resident/fellow to independently and competently practice pathology with a life-long commitment to continued learning and excellence. In-depth training is offered in both Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, separately or as a combined program.

Programs are available for new graduates, as well as to those with post-doctoral experience. Training is offered at three sites: an academic, tertiary care referral center (West Virginia University), and a large community hospital (Charleston Area Medical Center). Although the program is geared to produce well-rounded community hospital pathologists, residents are encouraged to explore a career in academic pathology as well.
